District nurse's approach for professional competence development in home care : - An interview study (English)
Abstract [sv]

Introduktion: Distriktssköterskor som arbetar inom hemsjukvård ställs inför allt mer avancerad vård i hemmet då dagens medicinska utveckling medger denna möjlighet till allt fler patienter. Denna utveckling medför ökade krav på distriktssköterskors kompetens och det innebär även ett ökat behov av kompetensutveckling. Syfte: Att beskriva distriktssköterskors tillvägagångssätt för att utveckla sin professionella kompetens inom hemsjukvården. Metod: Kvalitativ metod med innehållsanalys har använts i studien där semistrukturerade intervjuer utfördes med tio stycken distriktssköterskor arbetandes inom hemsjukvård. Resultat: Studien resulterade i fyra kategorier: Eget sökande efter kunskap, Kollegialt lärande, Kunskap genom andra vårdgivare och Utbildas via arbetsgivarenKonklusion: Resultatet visar på att distriktssköterskor tar ett stort eget ansvar för sin professionella kompetensutveckling. För att patientsäkerheten inte ska äventyras söker distriktssköterskor kunskap på egen hand, de har ingen särskild tid avsatt för detta under arbetstiden. Distriktssköterskorna behöver mer tid och resurser för professionell kompetensutveckling på arbetstid, en samordning inom professionen krävs för att effektivisera kunskapssökning samt att arbetsgivare behöver få en ökad medvetenhet om distriktssköterskors behov av professionell kompetensutveckling.

Abstract [en]

Introduction: District nurses who are working in home care are faced with increasingly advanced home care, as the current medical development is allowing more and more opportunities for patients. This development implies increasing demands on district nurses’ skills and as a consequence, the need for further education increases. Aim: To describe district nurses’ approach to developing their skills in home care. Method: The qualitative method content analysis has been applied in the study, where semistructured interviews were made with ten district nurses working in home care. Results: The study resulted in four categories: Searching for knowledge on their own, Collegial Learning, Knowledge through other healthcare providers and Education through the employerConclusion: The result shows that district nurses take a large responsibility for their professional competence development. In order to ensure that patient safety is not compromised, district nurses seek knowledge on their own, they have no special time allocated for this during their working hours. District nurses need more time and resources for professional competence development during working hours, coordination within the profession is required to streamline knowledge search and employers need to gain increased awareness of district nurses' need for professional competence development.
